Protecting junior golfers is The Confederation of Golf in Ireland’s first priority and we are committed to providing an environment that will allow our junior golfers to perform to the best of their ability. CGI’s aim is to help our Golf Clubs make golf activities safe for young people whilst encouraging them to reach their full potential.
In order to achieve this, we have created a range of appropriate policies and procedures to guide Clubs in setting up and maintaining the right environment to safeguarding the children in their care and to providing a safe environment in which they can play, learn, develop and reach their full potential.
These policies must be implemented by all Golf Clubs and brought to the attention of all those working with juniors in your Club. Safeguarding is about being proactive and putting measures in place in advance of any contact with children to ensure that children are kept safe.
All those working with juniors in Golf undergo the necessary Garda Vetting/Access NI checks and complete the appropriate safeguarding training as required by legislation and best practice. Golf Clubs are required to undertake a written Risk Assessment document which indicates the areas of potential risk of harm, the likelihood of the risk occurring and gives the required policy, guidance and procedures required to alleviate these risks
